Interest in Electric Bicycles Remains Enormous in EU’s biggest E-Bike Market

AMERSFOORT, the Netherlands – In fact, it would be logical to see the first signs of saturation in the Netherlands, which has been Europe’s (relatively speaking) fastest growing and largest e-bike market for years. However, this is not the case, as the sales data of more than 300 dealers covering the first eight months of 2019 shows. Turnover-wise their sales of city e-bikes grew by close to 36 percent during the named period.

Are Supply Shortages Hitting on Europe’s Biggest E-Bike Market?

BAD SODEN, Germany – With the coming into force of the anti-dumping tariffs on the import of e-bikes from China mid-January 2019, that import has fallen to a negligible number. Of course, other countries have jumped into this gap, like Taiwan. But this cannot fill the supply gap that comes with the greatly reduced supply from China. The consequences of this now become apparent from the latest data of Germany’s industry association. It raises the question if supply shortages are hitting on Europe’s biggest e-bike market.
